Does anyone use a salt inhaler or something of the sort to help breathing? Or am I grasping at straws
Inhaler: Does anyone use a salt inhaler... - British Lung Foun...
Hi Joanna,I bought mine from a Health Shop, you can order from amazon also. Just Breathe in as you would when doing Breathing Exercises. It helps with my Breathing ,the reason why I use it. I do my Stats every Morning. I take Carbocistiene for Mucus, they work, ask your GP or Consultant. Good luck Hun. xxx
I got a salt inhaler by mail order, and use it sometimes when the mucous seems a bit claggy. I don't really know whether it works as the problem might go of its own accord, but there is some evidence that they do work. This relates to the osmotic effect of the salt in the lungs drawing fluid into them and thinning the mucous. The same can be said of sea air, which has always been considered good for the lungs, but you have to be careful, as one asthmatic advised, because dampness can worsen asthma symptoms in some people - however, that shouldn't be a problem with salt inhalers.
